What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

6. Kendall. Montana, May 5, 1903 IS A RARE DISEASE. Parasitic Invasion Which Leaves Sufferer Incapable of Exertion. l'enetrate Mucous Membrane of lu- te•tinea and Produce Extreme Inorrtia—Claaa of Workmen Moat Liable to Attack. There is no prospect of an invasion of the \lazy disease\ unless the phase known as ennui in high-class phrase- ology spreads throughout the city. Physicians declare that the case of ankylostoma discovered in the Johns Hopkins hospital, in Baltimore, has no reference to the common term, so when a man says he is suffering from laziness he cannot attribute it to a parasitic invasion, says the Chicago Record -Herald of recent date. Naturally the English term used by Dr. Charles W. Stiles in referring to the case in the Baltimore hospital would convey to one the idea that \lazy disease\ has some reference to the feeling of lassitude and inertia, which is known to prevail trong the class scientifically designated the genus hobo. Local physicians, how- ever, insist this is not true, and say the tramp should not be given an ex- cuse for his desire to avoid manual exertion. When asked if they thought the in- dividual who pleaded before a Maxwell street justice recently that he had not worked for 12 years was suffering from ankylostoma or \lazy disease,\ each medical expert said: \No; teat was laziness of a different type.\ \The tramp is lazy because be likes it,\ said Dr. John B. Murphy, \and not from any physical ailment. The case referred to in dispatches concerning a man in the Johns Hopkins hospital has reference to a rare disease. Ankylostoma, or thp term 'lazy dis- ease,' has no connection with the com- mon or accepted term. It is a parasitic invasion of the duodenum.\ Record of only one case being treat- ed in the city was oiscovered. A few years ago a southern man entered the county hospital suffering from ankyl- ostoma. Dr. Joseph A. Capps treated the man, who was affliCted practically with the symptoms described in the Baltimore sufferer. Parasites known under the medical term of uncinaris duodenalls had penetrated the mucous membrane of 'the intestines, causing a serious loss of blood. They likewise produced lassitude and inertia, leav- ing the sufferer without any desire for physical exercise. Dr. Capps wrote a history of the case at the time, and it was reported in the medical journals as a unique and rare disease. \The statement concerning the con- dition of the patient in the Johns Hop- kins hospital is scientifically correct,\ said Dr. David R. Brower. \The dis- ease called ankylostoma is a rare thing, and to the best of my recollec- tion has only been discovered once or twice in this country. The relation of that parasite is comparatively of re- cent discovery. Typhoid fever has many of the same symptoms, but such situation as that crating in the case of the man in Baltimore is practical- ly new.\ Dr. Bertram W. Sippy said he had personal knowledge of but one case of \lazy disease,\ that being the one told of by Dr. Capps. \Cases of this kind of disease always come from the naath,\ said Dr. Sippy, \and there they usually ire found in the mountains. They are not numerous. • I recall a sketeb of the disease In connection with the St. Gothard tunnel. Tunnel workers are more likely to suffer from it than any other class, ant': in the work there several instances are said to have been found in which the work- men had been attacked by these para- sites.\ Dr. Arthur Dean Bevan and - Dr. Hen- ry T. Byford said they had not met with any cape of ankylostorria in their practice, although both had heard of the case treated by Dr. Capps. Remarkable Automatic Balloon. The French government is interest- ed in a scheme for exploring the Sa- hara by balloon. Before aeronauts undertake the trip, however, a balloon Provided with automatic steering and equilibrating apparatus is, if possible, to be sent alone across the desert, from north to south. The north- northwest winds which prevail over the Sahara from October until April are depended on to drive the balloon on its voyage of about 1,400 miles, from Gabes on the Mediterranean to the river Niger. A steel guide -rope 2,400 feet long governs the balloon's mo- tions. When -ever it sinks to within 150 feet of the ground, the change in the position of the rope results in the opening of an automatic valve, allow- ing the escape of water ballast. As the balloon rises the valve closes. If the experiment succeeds, four aero- nauts will try to cross in a balloon.— Youth's Companion. Cora Meal to Irattem Geese.
